Even in our dumba$$ hippy-loving bleeding-heart-liberal state of VT, only a vehicle that came from the factory with a catalytic converter has to have one to pass inspection. They don't sniff-test right now, but that will probably change soon. I'm fine with it as long as the sniff-test also applies to hippy B.O.
I think the only good thing about owning a classic car in Sweden is:
Only bi-annual inspections, tops
Cheaper (real cheap) insurance cost (fully covered abt $300/yr)
No tax (only a small fee, known an "registration fee" abt $5/yr)
Emission test? What's that? Usually, the inspector is a (classic)car loving man who does not bother checking your CO2 levels, or anything else, for that matter.
You bring a Volvo/SAAB/F¤¤d/ other car of more modern design...well thats a different ball game.
This is the maybe the only thing that is better than living in e.g CA. The climate? I'll trade ours for yours tomorrow if possible
Wow!! That is HUGE!!! 1996 & later used OBD (On Board Diagnostics) I also got antique plates for my 1969. I remember my first 1969 was down for a while after the engine was replaced. I got it running again and had to test every freakin November. I remember one year it was raining like cats, dogs, buckets & 55 gallon drums to boot. It was also about 35 degrees. I think it was 1992. I had to drive from Addison, IL (where I worked at the time) to the Bedford Park emissions control center to get my 1969 sniff tested.
That car ran clean even with 12.5:1's in it and a .292/544 cam in my 396. It would have passed 1979 specs and not that far from 1980 specs.
It's about time!! Although I thought the new law would just make cars older than 25 years exempt. I guess one can go buy a 1993 ZR1-Corvette or a 1995 Viper and not have to worry about it as long as they were in compliance as of February 1, 2007. Cool!!
